I've never understood people getting excited about "tax holidays." Sales tax in Virginia is like 6 percent. Most people wouldn't even look twice at a sign advertising a 6 percent sale.

Y'all are assuming it's for the students. Given the frequency of female-teacher-bangs-male-student stories on Fark, don't you think it's more likely that the lingerie is for the teachers?

Super Chronic: Nothing else induces irrationality quite like the ability to avoid paying the government.


"And a gentleman came up to me and actually thanked me for the adopt a [Colorado Springs] street light program. He had just written a check to the city for $300 to turn all the street lights back on in his neighborhood. And I did remind him that for $200 if he had supported the tax initiative, we could have had not only streetlights, but parks and firemen and swimming pools and community centers. That by combining our resources, we as a community can actually accomplish more than we as individuals....[And] he said he would never support a tax increase."

Nothing else induces irrationality quite like the ability to avoid paying the government.  (This, by the way, is why private foundations exist: rich folks would rather give $1 million to some artistic endeavor than let the government have $400,000.)


or they would rather direct their own money than see the government squander it.

It's a tax holiday for clothing in general, not just for children's clothing. It coincides with the back-to-school-supply tax holiday because it, like, makes a lot of sense to do that.

With education costs rising the way they are, how else do you expect her to pay for college?
